How to freeze feijoas

April 30, 2012 | Filed under Dessert

It’s feijoa time again.  The ground under my tree is a mass of green fruit and those I’m not giving away are getting eaten raw, frozen or bottled.

It’s easy to freeze feijoas.  All you have to do is peel the skins off, cut the fruit in half (lengthwise or cross wise – it doesn’t matter) and put them into plastic containers and into the freezer.

Sometimes I freeze the feijoa halves by placing them on a large tray so that the pieces don’t touch each other. I freeze them in the tray and then I lift the frozen fruit off the tray and into a plastic bag or container and put them back into the freezer.  The benefit of this method is that you can take out just as many pieces as you want when you’re ready to eat them because they are ‘free-flow’.

If I have a bit more time, I will ‘bottle’ the feijoas.

    How long do they keep frozen?

    I’ve kept them frozen for up to one year. Sometimes I cook them briefly before we eat them when they’ve been frozen but its not really necesary. Just a personal preference.

    Can I freeze the feijoas then defrost and make jam from them?

    Absolutely. I have done that in the past. And just this week I defrosted feijoas I had frozen in May 2017 and made them into feijoa crumble for dessert. It was just as good as if I had used fresh feijoas in season.
